International Management and Cross-cultural Studies

The work of this group is focused primarily on foregrounding alternative paradigms that emerge from different ontologies of human practice and thought in the intellectual traditions of Chinese, Indian and Islamic philosophies. 

Each of these is unique in their own way but all emphasise relational and processual ontologies of practice. These alternate discourses offer rich alternatives to the dominant paradigms in management studies.

This group also strongly encourages interdisciplinary studies that draw upon sociology, philosophy and psychology. Developing these alternative perspectives from interdisciplinary studies, research within this theme is focused on topics such as leadership, HR, organisational behaviour and psychology, learning, business ethics, corporate social responsibility, strategy and entrepreneurship.
